Top Stories of October 2018 on Microsoft News: Voices of Change. Acts of Kindness. The News You Need to Know.

When you recount the events and news of October 2018, what comes to mind for you? Which top stories do you think captured the nation’s attention? Did you lean toward coverage of Hurricane Michael? Or perhaps news from mid-term election pre-coverage? Maybe the parcel bomb case?

The top stories that captivated your attention in October may surprise you. They may remind you of the compassion we feel for others, the power of vulnerability and taking a stand, the need to understand the important news of the day, but also speaks to our fascination with pop culture and the personalities of our era.

Let’s take a stroll through the most-read stories of October.

On October 15, Lady Gaga delivered an inspiring, vulnerable and powerful acceptance speech at the ELLE Women in Hollywood event. Her Marc Jacobs’ suit was oversized and her message was larger than life. She touched on topics of sexual abuse, mental health and depression, and emphasized the power of being herself and rising above the expectations of others. This story took top spot as most-read against all others in October.

If you’ve ever struggled with when to break some important news to someone, our second most-read story of October may strike a chord. You might imagine the flurry of calls and texts between many in the Royal family when Meghan Markle’s pregnancy was revealed during Princess Eugenie’s wedding. While Royals watchers everywhere were delighted with the announcement, the timing of the news wasn’t considered proper protocol and created quite the storm in the Royal family.

Another storm began small, but quickly escalated into one of the most powerful hurricanes to hit the mainland in decades. More than 60 deaths have been attributed to Hurricane Michael, along with destruction and flooding in Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, Virginia, Maryland. Throughout the event, you read about the heart-breaking devastation (the third most-read story) and why this hurricane was a ‘monster like no other.’

A rose floating in a lake might not catch the attention of some. But this story of compassion certainly caught your attention. Bishop Vesey’s Grammar School Rowing Club in Birmingham, England, came across the red rose in the water, along with a note asking for help from a wheelchair bound wife who wished to honor her late husband. The Tweet by the stranger that granted her wish by tossing the rose into the lake for her, went viral. Readers worldwide were inspired by this act of kindness and humanity; one Tweet confirmed with “We are better people for sharing this.”

Another story from the world of sports resonated with you. It wasn’t about a victory for an NFL team or a scuffle in an NCAA game. It was about a community making a difference in the life of a 6-year old boy. After the Phoenix Suns found out that no one showed for the boy’s birthday party, they invited him to celebrate with thousands of fans at the Lakers versus Suns game. Now that’s a show of true community and a day to remember!

Both ranked in the top 9 most-read stories of October.

You were also interested in this account of President Trump’s recent increase in press appearance activities in contrast with White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders’ visibility, and news of with Senator Warren’s announcement of DNA results.

    Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

    Jewish Rabbis have publicly announced that their Messiah will be revealed in the coming years who will be a leader and spiritual guide to all nations, gathering all religions under the worship of one God. They deny Jesus as their Messiah, and the Bible tells us this Jewish Messiah will be the counterfiet that will bring about a false peace, and ultimatley the great tribulation.

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him. On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple.

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them. This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically in Revelation 13:16-18:

    “He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.”

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. This Mark couldn’t be spiritual because the word references two different physical locations. If it was spiritual it would just say in the forehead. RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency. It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it! We must grow strong in Jesus. AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    “Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we needed two key things. One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast.

    Visit http://WWW.BIBLEFREEDOM.COM to see proof for these things and much more!

    If you haven’t already, it is time to seek God with all your heart. Jesus loves you more than you could imagine. He wants to have a relationship with you and redeem you from your sins. Turn to Him and repent while there is still hope! God bless!

    An additional issue is that video games are usually serious in nature with the key focus on understanding rather than enjoyment. Although, it comes with an entertainment factor to keep the kids engaged, each game will likely be designed to focus on a specific experience or course, such as mathematics or scientific disciplines. Thanks for your write-up.

    Howdy this is kind of of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!|

    I don’t know about being drummed out, Patricia, as it never even so much raised a blip to me until I caught a discussion on a movie forum where someone said it ruined their enjoyment of the film. I can’t even comprehend taking offense to it, but I’m worried that that maybe watching too many rough and tumble oldies may have given me a warped sense of what to expect. I will say that I think it’s the most well intentioned punch I’ve ever seen!

    Thanks for revealing your ideas. I might also like to mention that video games have been at any time evolving. Today’s technology and revolutions have made it simpler to create genuine and fun games. These kind of entertainment video games were not that sensible when the actual concept was being experimented with. Just like other kinds of technological innovation, video games also have had to develop by way of many many years. This is testimony to the fast development of video games.
